My Bathroom Gets a Rolling Door

A before & after makeover showing you how I used a hardware kit to install a rolling door in my bathroom.

DIY-Rolling-Door Designs-Tutorial

I know you have seen rolling doors all over Pinterest.  They add tons of character to a room and my two-story bathroom needs just that!  It is just a big cavernous space.  With the removal of the swinging door into the room, I have created a better flow between rooms while adding lots of fresh style and character.

before: swinging door

When you walk into my bedroom there are 2 doors that overlap and then a third one behind the second one. Sound confusing?  It is!

There are way too many overlapping doors – door to my bedroom, door to bathroom, and the door to the shower all within 3 steps of each other. Not good!  The door knobs always touch and the shower door gets linked to the bathroom door knob daily and has to be pulled apart.  Ideally pocket doors are what the builder of the house should have put in here. 

Doorways before

after:  rolling door & hardware installed

With the help of a rolling door and rolling door hardware–removing the swinging door in the bathroom that hid the shower stall and replacing it with a rolling door creates a much better flow and the bonus…


…of adding character and style to my cavernous two-story bathroom.  Bold and big accessories are needed to create balance in here. The addition of the rolling door is like adding a piece of large art.   I chose to paint the door a fun color – the name of the color is Celestial #A1403 from Glidden.

View of doorway with the rolling door hardware installed from the bedroom.  I painted the outside of the door white and the inside – blue.


The bathroom door no longer swings into the room, blocking the shower door, but silently glides along the rail that is attached above and along the wall with 4 brackets.


Here is how it looks open.

and closed.


Adding the door was so easy to do!!  It looks hard, but it took longer to paint the door, then to hang it.  Getting the rail up and level took the most time. This is best done with two people. I had Ed help me do this. The rest, I did myself.

Each door kit comes with:

  • 2 roller straps
  • Rail
  • Mounting brackets
  • 2 Rail end stops
  • Floor door stop
  • Floor center guide
  • Rail tap and splice kit (when necessary)

You will also need:

  • Door – A solid, not hollow-core door that is at least 6-inches wider than door opening. It can also be taller.   My original swinging door was 30” wide. I bought a new door that was 36” wide and about 1-inch taller.  You need the overlap so the doorway opening will be completely covered when closed.
  • 2 Door Pulls

Roller Strap Installation on Door

Paint the door on both sides before attaching the roller straps.

1. Install the roller straps onto the top edge of the door. The location of these straps is critical for the proper, safe use of the rolling door.

2. The distance between the top of the door and the outer diameter of the back of the wheel (measured from the back of the door) should be 13/16” – 7/8” (this will achieve approximately 3/32” gap between the top of the door and the rail when these measurements are achieved).

3. Using the screws provided, attach the strap to the door. It is very important that the screws are installed into solid wood, not hollow-core doors with thin veneer skins. It is also recommended that you pre-drill the screw holes. Make sure that proper vertical alignment of the strap is achieved before fastening the strap to the door.

Rail Installation

1. The location of the rail is dependent on the height of the door, desired gap between the floor and bottom of door and desired overlay of top of the door to door opening.
2. Recommended spacing for the wall mounted brackets is 16”
3. The Short Bracket will accommodate doors up to 1-1/2” thick, the Long Bracket will accommodate doors up to 2-1/4” thick.
4. Wall brackets must be mounted securely into the studs behind the sheetrock. If the brackets are to be mounted to the molding surrounding the opening, the molding must be firmly secured to the wall framework

When attaching the brackets, I ran into a problem. The molding around my door is not flat. I could not mount the brackets on it.  Rolling Door Designs sells two different bracket depths – long and short. Neither was right.

You know me, I was not going to let this stop me from having a rolling door. My solution was a 1/4-inch thick piece of plywood cut to the size of the back of the bracket.   I pre-drilled holes in them to match the holes on the brackets.

Brackets-for Rolling Door Designs Door Hardware

I used one behind each bracket. This added the right depth so the door would glide over the molding freely. I could have added one long- 1/4” thick board above the door to hold the brackets, but I wanted to keep the look above the door clean-lined.

How to Attach the Rolling Door to the Rail

This is best done with two people or as I like to call it a 4-hands needed DIY  :)  Remove the rail from the brackets. There is a groove along the back of the rail that slides over the bracket tips.   Once it is off – slide the rail under the rollers that you attached to the door.   Once the rail is under both rollers, slide the rail back over the tips on the brackets.  Attach an end cap onto each end of the rail.

1. After installing the door onto the rail, slide the door to the desired opened position.
2. Install the End Stop bracket to the floor or wall so that the door stops in the desired opened position.
3. Install the Center Guide bracket so that the door will always be captured by this bracket in the fully opened and fully closed position.
4. Repeat step #2 for installation of the other End Stop bracket when the door is in the closed position.

Rolling Door Door-Pulls

I bought two types of pulls at the hardware store. A flush mounted cap pull for the outside of the door. (This is needed since this side of the door will roll back along the bathroom wall.) A pull style handle is fine for the inside of the door.

To attach the flush mounted cap pull, I needed a drill bit that would cut out a circle into the door so I could push the round metal pull into it.

  6. Sheryll & Critters. says:

    I don’t know how I missed this post, but golly gosh, I just love it.

  7. Hi, I am wondering about the air drift between the rolling doon and the frame. How to avoid the humidity from bath go into bedroom, and avoid the a/c loss from bedroom. Looking forward to a solution :)

    Luv your ideas!

    Thank you

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Monica – My bathroom has a 16 ft ceiling, there is also a window, so even before I put the door in, I never had the steamy bathroom scenario in this room. If it was a smaller bathroom without a window or exhaust fan, I don’t know why the rolling door would be any different than a regular door. The opening is blocked. When choosing a door – just make sure it is wider and taller than the door opening so the opening will be fully covered.

  13. Sharon Sweeting says:

    Hi Diane!

    I’m so excited to find you! I was searching for Monogram Fonts and your blog was on Google’s first page (way to go!) – I had a lovely time looking at a number of the monogram posts and then clicked on the thumbnail for your Sliding Door.

    I would *LOVE* to have a sliding door for our Masterbath. We had to take the exciting door off, since the door hit the sink when open. I liked all of the designs and finishes, but I think the Black Earnhardt would fit the best (today).

    I’ve connected with you on Facebook, Twitter, G+, Instagram and Pinterest. I hope to hear from you on Saturday!!


  14. I like the Bronze Winston Churchill Single Rolling Door Kit

  15. Black Earnhardt is my favorite and would look awesome in my living room! I can’t get over their prices. They are so much more reasonable than others I have found.

  37. Hi! I love the Black Earnhardt Single door! I’ve wanted to put a pocket door to my laundry room off the kitchen but recently found out that would involve major construction to move a header. Looks like that’s a no-go. Between the dryer door always hitting the laundry room door, and laundry baskets hitting it, the trim paint always takes a beating. This would be a great solution!

    I love the bronze house laminated and the bronze Madonna. I have the perfect door! I grew up in a home built in the 1920s. The doors were solid wood with the glass knobs. A few years ago my parents sold my childhood home to a company that planned to treat it down for a parking lot! I rescued some doors and an using them as a headboard. I have an extra and would love to use this hardware to give it new life!! Thanks for posting the site and the contest!!

    1. margaret k says:

      PS: I love your bathroom rug. Did you make it yourself or purchase it?

      1. Diane Henkler says:

        Hi Margaret – I purchased the rug at HomeGoods. $14.99 :)

  40. Love the Black Madonna, would look great in our bedroom that also has dueling doors that I untangle daily!

  41. Megan Jones says:


  42. the Bronze Barnum style is Great, will be perfectly in my bathroom, i am going to make it happen :)

  43. Monica Porto says:

    Hello Diane!
    That’s a great product, I just hope that I will be able to find it here in France…
    I have two questions regarding this project:
    1) how do you lock this door?
    2) could you write a post on how you treated all the holes and gaps that were left after you removed the previous door?
    You have incredible taste and I love the way you make everything look so easy to achieve. Reading your blog brings lost of joy and light to our days!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Monica –

      Good question about the locks. Yes you can purchase locks for the doors. The type you would use would depend on the way the door is mounted around the frame. The simplest being a sliding chain to one that gets set within the door itself. Rolling Door Designs does not sell them. Maybe they will soon. If you do a Google or Bing search I am sure you will see some of the ways to add a lock.

      As for filling in the holes and cut-out sections of molding where the hinges for the old door were. Spackle, sandpaper, and paint. Fill the holes with Spackle or wood filler using a Spackle knife. Let dry, sand smooth. Repeat the process until the wood is smooth, then paint the molding. I used one coat of gripping primer since the original paint was oil-based. When the primer was dry, I used two coats of semi-gloss latex in white.

      If your doorway molding is stained, not painted – you would need to find wood filler that would take the stain after filling in the holes. You may have to add new molding if you could not find a perfect stain match.

  45. I like the Bronze Barnum, would work perfectly in our bathroom too!

  46. Hi Diane,
    We have been looking for a way to add a door to the 5 foot doorway in our master bathroom. A double sliding door would be perfect for that. I love the Satin nickel double door Winston Churchill hardware. It matches the upholstery nails on the headboard that I am making. Thanks for the great ideas!

    I like the satin nickel sea biscuit design. Years ago we we installed a rolling door on our small hall bath, we used barn door hardware. It worked on our ranch home in the country.

  67. This looks fantastic! I know what you mean about too many doors. Our guest bedroom has a door that opens into a very short hallway (like three steps) that leads into the bathroom that has a door. There’s a linen closet in the short hallway and it has a door. We’ve already removed the door into the hallway and am considering removing the linen closet door, except I would like the option of being able to hide the stuff in the closet. I like the Black Don Draper Single Rolling Door Kit.

  68. Magdalena says:

  69. Hi! I like the Black Barnum single door kit. This would be a great solution between our foyer and “TV room” (formerly our dining room).

  70. Magdalena says:

    Oh my! This is exactly what I NEED! I purchased a kit a few years ago to do exactly what you accomplished…I have three bathroom doors in a very small master bath and you have to be strategic about opening and closing, due to the crazy overlap. My problem was that the kit I had purchased required purchasing taller doors to close properly…at that point I gave up. So, this kit is genius…I can use my same doors! :) I like the Satin Nickel Winston Churchill Single Rolling Door Kit. Many Thanks for your post!!!

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Magdalena –

      You can’t use the original door if you want it to overlap the wall and molding around the door frame when closed. If using two doors that will meet in the center – they still need to be wider than the opening to look right. The new door I purchased was 6″ wider and 1″ taller than the swinging door I removed. If the door is taller – the rail would be placed higher on the wall. For my door height – It runs along the top portion of the doorway opening molding.

  71. I already followed you on Pinterest. Now I’m following you on Facebook, too! :)

  72. So many beautiful choices! I like the Bronze Earnhardt Single Rolling Door Kit.

  73. Following on Pinterest! :)

  74. Ohhh … how I love this! I could definitely see the Satin Nickel Earnhardt Double Rolling Door in my bathroom. Love it! Love them all!!

    Also, if you could share more information on your shower stall design … I wouldn’t doubt it was one of your fabulous DIY projects at some point ;)

  128. Oh wow! I’ve looked at those rolling door options with puppy dog eyes for quite some time now but they are just too cost prohibitive for me. They “create” room where little exists. My favorite would be the Black Hand Forged House Lannister. It would fit perfectly in my Cape Cod!

  144. I like the black garfield single rolling door kit. I was amazed at the options. I’ve never seen anything like this. It is perfect for my bathroom which also has 3 doors crashing into one another. A closet, the toiliet area and the utility room doors. A pocket door would have been great, but this is the perfect way without tearing down walls – and it is cool. :)

  145. I follow you on Facebook!

  146. Oh, we really need to do this in our laundry room! I get tired of hitting the door while moving laundry and if the washer walks at all during the cycle it blocks the door! I like the earnhardt single door kit in bronze.

  147. Are you kidding me… I’d be a happy camper with any of the options! But since you insist, I’ll choose the black Les Mis.

  148. Mary Gearheart says:

    I love all of them! If you forced me I would have to say the Earnhardt or Don Draper in Bronze. It really looks great in your bathroom!

  150. I love the satin nickle Barnum single door hardware and have just the doorway in mind where it would look spectacular. Thanks so much for offering the GIVEAWAY!

  151. Kathi Moss says:

    I love all the designs. I want one in my kitchen over my pantry. Thank you, sharing.

  152. I follow you on Facebook!

  153. I love the Bronze Les Mis Single Rolling Door Kit. I think this is an awesome idea!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

  154. Diane, I also follow you on Facebook and Pinterest.

  155. Great solution for tight spaces. I like the satin nickel Earnhardt. It would be perfect for my laundry room.

  156. PJ CRIDER says:

    Love these doors. so many rooms they can be used.

  157. Maureen Figueredo says:

    I really like the Shakespeare design of the Rolling Door hardware. It’s simple, classic, and goes with my understated design esthetic. It will look great in my tiny bathroom. My regular “swing” door hits the tub when it is fully open – (I told you it’s tiny!)

  158. Candy Thayer says:

    Love the Le Miz…so very French. Oui!

  159. Fritzy Dean says:

    Diane, Your projects are always so fabulous when you are finished. I do not have your talent , nor a husband to help. But I have a trusted handy man who could install the BLACK EARNHARDT, if I should win. This old lady would be so happy! The rolling door would solve a closet door problem which has plagued me since I moved into this house.

    I’m a huge fan and will continue if I win or not.

  160. Terri Ball says:

    Love the way the door looks. From the midwest, so this barn door option just never thought of as an inside door Dah…
    I would like the:
    Bronze House Lannister Single Rolling Door Kit
    $519.99 (of course My favorite would be over the limit- maybe I could pay the difference lol)
    The one that fits the criteria:
    Bronze Winston Churchill Single Rolling Door Kit
    $313.99 (I am sure I could make this work, no problem lo)

    Thank you

  161. Terri Ball says:

    I followed you on Pinterest. Thank you for another option.

  162. Love the Bronze House Lannister Single rolling door kit. This would neatly solve my problem of the door to our guest bathroom: the door opens into the narrow room and hits the toilet! Thanks for sponsoring the give-away.

    1. Diane Henkler says:

  165. Hi Diane, what a nice giveaway! I really like the Shakespeare Black double door roller. I have the absolute best spot for it!

  166. Patty Falck says:

    I just came across your blog last night and have had hours of enjoyment!
    I’m a lover of rolling doors and just started researching them online. We just moved my husband Steve into our 1st floor living room because of his illness, Multiple System Atrophy. He is bedridden but this move allows him to feel like he is a part of all the activity. There is an arched doorway into the room and I thought a rolling door would be perfect to give him privacy. Steve was a surfer, raced sailboats and skied until this awful disease consumed him 4 years ago. So I showed him the hardware and he said the “Satin Nickel Don Draper Single Rolling Door” reminded him of the blocks used on sailboats…just perfect for him!

  167. I love the Madonna one

  168. Madeleine Ward says:

    I would love to replace my ugly vertical blinds with Bronze Plato Double Rolling Door Kit, or my closet with the single

  169. Patricia Crowley says:

    My favorite is the Satin Nickel Eddie Vedder Single Rolling Door Kit!

  170. Kelli Siehl says:

    I like the BLACK BARNUM SINGLE ROLLING DOOR KIT. Our master bath has a similar set-up, but I want to remove the bathroom door and put the barn door on the far side of our closets.

  171. I follow you on Facebook and on Pinterest.

  172. I like the Satin Nickel Earnhardt kit. I’m sure I should win – I’d just decided this morning that a rolling door is exactly what I need between my bedroom and bath. It can’t be a coincidence, can it?

  173. I love the Satin Nickel Garfield! Great giveaway :)

  174. Following you on Pinterest. I had already repinned several great tips … might as well be a true follower.

  175. I like the Black Hand Forged House Lannister Single Door Kit. We almost ordered it a year ago for our bathroom remodel (that blew it’s budget) and had planned to use a reclaimed barn door for our new bathroom door. However, with a nearly 60 year old house other things needed “fixin”, so we don’t have a door between the bathroom and master bedroom. I’ve almost gotten accustomed to everyone walking in on me.

  176. Already follow you on Instagram, pinterest and twitter! ;) door looks great!

  177. Susan Manger says:

    I love what you selected. The Winston Churchill Satin Nickle. It would go so well with my existing hardware and style. This is such a fabulous idea for tight spaces with too many doors. Thanks for sharing!

  178. I like the bronze Barnum :-)

  179. Lisa papada says:

    I am digging the black Lucky charm! So cool!!

  180. Neve hennessey says:

  182. Luv, luv, luv the Black Earnhardt!!!

  183. Christine S says:

    Such a wonderful idea. I have a master bathroom with no door so this is perfect for that. I liked the Bronze Plato Single kit.

  184. Black Don Draper for sure. I’ve been following you on Facebook and Pintrest for a long time plus your blog is in my favorites list:)

  201. Teresa Cline says:

    I like all of them, however in order to choose one I would have to say;

    Black Earnhardt Single Rolling Door Kit

    My brother in law needs more wheel chair space getting in and out of his bathroom and this would be the perfect solution!!

  202. Have been thinking of dping a barn door for the bath room. Would love Black Lucky Charm Single Rolling Door Kit.

  206. Shelley Smith says:

    Whoo hoo! I LOVE this!
    We’ve been wanting to put a rolling door between our bathroom and bedroom for ages, but the hardware can be really pricey. This is a pretty great deal though, even if I don’t win the giveaway :)

    I think if I had my choice, it would be the SATIN NICKEL PLATO STYLE SINGLE ROLLING DOOR KIT. How awesome would that look on a clean, white door with some kind of plaque on it!?

    Keeping my fingers crossed!


  207. My fav was the BLACK EARNHARDT SINGLE ROLLING DOOR KIT. But its pretty cool in the satin nickel finish also.

  208. following you on Facebook!

  209. I know exactly where I would use this rolling door and that between our kitchen and the laundry room. We need to completely overhaul the kitchen so I am not sure if nickel or black would be best but like the garfield and lucky charm hardware.

    Love your pretty blue rolling door!

    bee blessed

  210. Hi Diane,
    I’ve always loved pocket doors because they help
    deal with the “small” space problem some of us face.
    However recently I watched an episode of This Old
    House where they installed a rolling door and was impressed.
    Your post outlining the installation and the benefits of using one
    have me excited! No worrying about the construction
    element of installing pocket doors! This seemed so
    easy! You did a great job! The rolling door looks great!

    1. I’m so excited that I forgot to mention the style
      I like! My favorite is the Black Les Mis Double Rolling Barn Door Kit!

  211. Ana White says:

    Followed you on Instagram, facebook and Pinterest!

  212. I really like the Black Les Mis Single door design. I have been wanting to do this in my living room to block off the draft from the stairway. I saw a do it yourself version in a magazine a while ago, but this is sooo much nicer! Hope I win and I LOVE your projects! You inspire me!

  213. I followed you on FB. :)

  214. Ana White says:

    Love the Bronze Lucky Charm one!

  215. I have the perfect spot for a rolling door and would love the satin nickel Winston Churchill design.

  216. And, I “Liked” you on Facebook!

  217. I really like the Madonna in satin nickel! And, when thinking about how I could reconfigure the downstairs laundry and bathroom, I was thinking about pocket doors, but this gives me a much simpler solution. And, until that remodel gets started, I can still use the rolling door to block the view of the laundry room from the kitchen. All I’d need to do is scoot the washer over a few inches to make room for the door, and I’d be all set. Thanks for the great idea!
